Seattle University’s Albers School of Business and Economics was ranked #2 in the Pacific Northwest and #3 on the West Coast. It also rose to #62 nationally. In 2020, it ranked #76 in the U.S. “This year’s ranking assesses three core values of an undergraduate business education: the quality of the admits, what a school does to grow those students over four years and, finally, how the marketplace responds to those graduates,” says Nathan Allen, project manager, Poets&Quants for Undergrads. “In other words, what’s the quality of the incoming students, how do they view their academic experience and what career outcomes are achieved by the graduating class.’ The publication compiled the 2021 rankings based on a representative survey of more than 6,100 alumni and school-reported data. Recent grads across 93 schools were surveyed on aspects of faculty availability, extracurricular opportunities and accessibility of the alumni network. Albers has a 93% placement rate for its 2019 undergraduate class. More information can be found at the undergraduate section of the Albers site.
